This borrow pit (dug for the high speed railway line in the back) is being further excavated and landscaped. Gaomi County, Shandong.
A borrow pit (see next picture) will be turned into a small lake – the Qingcao lake. This artificial lake will serve as the backdrop for film productions as it is located at the site of this permanent outdoor movie set.
Collecting and channeling road runoff, Gaomi County, Shandong.
Road runoff is channeled to a small surface reservoirs for irrigation. As the soils in the area are very clayey it is not possible to have effective recharge. Gaomi County, Shandong.
Hand-dug well for small-scale irrigation along the Abreha Westbeha-Hawzien road.
Shallow well (for water supply) at the road side of the Abreha Wetsbeha-Hawzien road, Ethiopia. Well was developed after the road construction but there is a plan to upgrade the road to an asphalt.
